After much teasing and foreshadowing, Melbourne death metallers, Hadal Maw have released the first single from their long awaited second album, Olm, due to be released via EVP Recordings on February 3, 2017.

The band have been devastating audiences across the country throughout 2016 with their revitalised sound and line up, featuring performances alongside Cryptopsy, Thy Art is Murder, Psycroptic and many more, giving Australian audiences a taste of what’s to come when the new album hits.

“We wrote the bulk of the music throughout 2015 when we never had a solid line up,” says drummer Rob Brens “So having the band in this somewhat fractured state gave us the opportunity to write with no preconceptions of what the band really was. We didn’t think about our previous work, or writing death metal or whatever. We just wrote music and we came out with what feels like a really fresh sound for us”.

The result is a departure from their total break-neck technical death metal roots. Hadal Maw’s music has evolved and features sprawling atmosphere, thunderous groove and memorable, crushing guitar lines that meld with their distinct dissonance tinged hooks that they’ve become renowned for.

Saturday, February 4: Northcote Social Club, Melbourne
Friday, February 10: The Bald Faced Stag, Sydney
Saturday, February 11 Brisbane Hotel, Hobart
